    >>> got a live person

    You sure? The next time you call, ask the representative what day of the week it is. The reply will either be: "That's the first I've heard of this problem" or "Have you tried a factory reset?" or "I have no idea about an update. Keep checking the Web site."

    >>> she said she had no idea about update if or when and for me to keep checking the website


    >>> was on with a manager and i was informed that Rogers and Bell customers will recieve update middle of december

    Nothing new. Last month, on its Facebook page, Samsung confirmed that the Android 2.2 update will be delivered to the Bell Vibrant and Rogers Captivate in mid-December.

    >>> then i questioned about being 2 FWs behind and future updates past 2.2 , the reply was there is no formal announcement as of yet,,


    >>> but after all carriers have 2.2 out,, there is a announcement prepared

    Announcement: "All carriers have 2.2 out."

    >>> and also said that this phone is not a short term project


    >>> so i found samsung canada to be very forth comming and helpful

    Hmmm. My expectations are a tad higher.

    OT for a sec, but I really do like Canadians. I've found them - for the most part - to be gentle souls. Whenever I've had the opportunity to interact with Canadians I've found them to be professional and courteous. Good eggs.

    Now back to our regularly-scheduled helping hand, periodically intermingled with frivolous bickering and pure nonsense.

    By the way....is the nexus s for a certain carrier?
  9. T-Mobile, and open (full price), IIRC, are your choices.

    After December 16, Nexus S will be sold unlocked and carrier-independent initially through Best Buy stores in the U.S. and after December 20 at Carphone Warehouse stores in the UK. Also available on T-mobile for a new 2 year contract for $199.

    Sure, Gingerbread could theoretically make it on the Galaxy S phones this month. Unfortunately for us, the Nexus S has STOCK Gingerbread. We can be damn sure no US carrier will allow stock android on their phones. I'd be lucky if my AT&T Captivate gets Gingerbread next December.

    thought about it and going to pass. No sd slot cripples the phone memory upgrade!

    first post ;]. Samsung has made it super easy to install 2.2 on captivate device if your that worried about it just install it yourself. You'll get the wireless ap setting too so you can wifi tether other devices (up to 5) via ad hoc. They even have a one click root for 2.2 captivate already out as well. I can't wait to flash to 2.3. btw first time rooting a device was yesterday i bricked 3 times but managed to easily recover each time i heard if you had a weird device it can get perma bricked check out all the info on this site before attempting happy days ;] :D

    I have been dwelling on this and I have a strange feeling that since our devices and the nexus S are so similar that we will be able to flash the vanilla 2.3 rom within a few days of release o_o
    Partly because samsung sucks and google probably did all the work, so they probably fixed all the problems and just make it work on the hardware

    I've been running Cognition 2.1 beta release 5 since it came out in early Oct. Its been rock solid for me for a couple of months now. The Wifi has always worked great when I couldn't even connect to my work wifi before I upgraded due to Eclair bugs. My bluetooth works great as well, I can even start a phone call with my headset button using Vlingo. The GPS works about the same as it did before the update.

    I haven't bothered to upgrade further because I've been busy and I haven't needed to. My phone with Cognition is just plain better and more stable than it was with stock Eclair.
  16. Consider yourself lucky. Some of us cannot get any ROM to work right- that includes stock 2.1. lol

    It works for everyone I've talked to, and the people on the IRC are extremely helpful with any problems you have for the Cognition ROM. I have it currently and I have experienced zero problems with it, it just feels like I have Froyo and there doesn't seem to be a reason to not upgrade to this version and take a few minutes so that we can all have Froyo =D

    I hope this is the case, but I feel it won't be that simple.

    Even if it isn't we will surely get custom roms with 2.3

    I have my fingers crossed that we get gingerbread before christmas. Just got my Captivate a week ago after switching from my 3GS.

    Yes and no. Nexus S will be sold unlocked but unfortunately at&t uses different frequencies for its HSDPA 3G network than T-Mobile. So while you can use this version of the nexus S on at&t, you won't have 3G.

    That sucks. I'm still probably going to get it after it is out a few months. Its to sexy to not have. Plus I think the Nexus S is just the way the Captivate and Fascinate SHOULD have been made.

    at&t uses 850 and 1900MHz bands for HSDPA. Nexus S is compatible with 900, 1700 and 2100MHz bands. TMo uses 1700 and 2100MHz bands.
